Kingmoor Sidings

Kingmoor Sidings is the site of a once busy and grimy steam locomotive depot, now echoes to the sound of nature. Although hidden by the creeping blanket of vegetation, you can still get a glimpse of the old turntable and the floor of the old engine sheds. Kingmoor Motive Power Depot once drew schoolboys from all around Carlisle and beyond, to marvel at the spectacle of steam.

Kingmoor Nature Reserves

Kingmoor North and Kingmoor South Nature Reserves are the remains of a much larger woodland which extended north from the Kingmoor Road in Carlisle to the M6 Motorway north of the City. Once the site of a horse racing course, Kingmoor now offers visitors a peaceful and relaxing walk in the woods.

Kingstown Wildlife Pond

Kingstown Wildlife Pond is a small freshwater haven for wildlife, secluded from the Kingstown Industrial Estate and Lowry Hill Road
